After 4 months of TRT, I decided to come off due to worsening sleep and libido. I also discovered during that 4 months that I had some severe thyroid/adrenal issues that need tending too.
My doctor prescribed me 25 mg of clomid a day for 8 weeks. No problem there. THEN, he prescribed HCG and instructed that I take 500 IUs 3x/week for the next 8 weeks also.
Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t HCG suppressive to the HPTA?? Doesn’t that totally defeat the purpose of the clomid which is to stimulate my HPTA production of LH?
I understand HCG is important for preserving testicular function, but I used HCG during my 4 months of TRT so that shouldn’t be an issue moving forward…
